Update on Morne Prosper road situation
In response to statements made by former Roseau Valley Parliamentary Representative, Mr. Norris Charles about the slow pace of the Roseau Valley project, the current Roseau Valley Parliamentary Representative for the Roseau Valley, Honourable Colin Mc. Intyre says that there have been set back but things are being worked out.
Some of the statements Mr. Charles made were that since 2010, there has been intermittent work on the first section of the road which is unsatisfactory, especially as we are now in 2012 and it has not been completed.
Mr. Charles also mentioned that, Morne Prosper is known as the vegetable basket of Dominica, and there is a serious water problem which is hindering production.
He said again in their quest to have the issue resolved, they have contacted the parliamentary representative, and also the government but their concerns are falling on death ears.
However Mr. Mc. Intyre says that, the former Parliamentary Representative has never contacted him about the issue.
He said that during the United Workers Party administration, they never saw it fit to work on the Morne Prosper road, and now that the United Workers Party is the opposition and not the ruling government, they are seeing things that need to be done.
He said the United Workers Party neglected the opportunities they had to make improvements in Dominica, and now they want to criticize the Dominica Labour Party who is working hard to improve the quality of life for Dominicans.
Mr. Mc Intyre also pointed out that, he wants the cooperation and understanding of the villagers of the Roseau Valley as they are working to have the roads repaired, and also work on a water situation which is affecting the residents of Morne Prosper.
